HOUSTON, June 30 (UPI) -- Lance Berkman homered and Roy Oswalt was cruising before leaving in the seventh with an injury Monday in Houston's 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Roy Oswalt (7-8) gave up only one run on six hits with no walks and nine strikeouts, but had to be lifted before throwing a pitch in the seventh because of a strained right hip.

Berkman also walked twice and scored two runs. Brad Ausmus had a two-run single for Houston, which has three straight wins.

Eric Stults (2-1) gave up four runs on five hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. Loney went 2-for-3 with an RBI, and Andre Ethier doubled and scored a run for Los Angeles.
